Welcome to Mrs. Odom's Fourth Grade Class!


All about me:

  • I am originally from Colorado. I moved to Texas to go to Baylor University. 
  • I graduated from Baylor and started teaching 4th grade in Waco. 
  • I married my best friend the past March. The past several months of marriage have been wonderful! He will be starting at Texas A&M law school this Fall. We have a fish named Paco. 
  • I teach Writing and Social Studies and love it!

  • Puppies
  • Going to the movies
  • Target!
I am excited to begin the 2016-2017 school year at Life School Mountain Creek Elementary. I look forward to meeting and getting to know all of you.  
Teaching your student is a great responsibility and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and encouraging learning experience this year. However, I cannot do this without the help of you, the parents and/or guardians.  We are partners in the learning process.  
I believe that parent-teacher relationships are necessary for maximum school success.  Throughout the year I will communicate through notes, telephone calls, emails, my classroom webpage, report cards and parent teacher conferences.  I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions for concerns at any time.  You can call me at the school, send me a written note or contact me via email.
Our fourth grade classroom will concentrate on positive behaviors with lots of positive reinforcement. Praising students when they have contributed positively to the classroom environment is also a disciplinary 'tactic'.  Students need recognition not only for positive reinforcement, but for building self-esteem and self-worth.   All students will receive praise when it is applicable; good behavior is always worth encouraging and taking notice.  
I believe it is very important to communicate between home and school and will do my best to keep you informed. Should you have any questions, comments or concerns at anytime throughout the year, please contact me at the school at (214) 623-0012 or via email at carlene.odom@lifeschools.net
Thank you!
